Timetable fo Kimberley Trip

I was planning on taking a lengthy trip through Australia, Tasmania, NZ, and finally the Fiji islands when I came across your site.

I was wondering if you could give me and idea of how many days I should plan for to see the Bungle Bungles, Mitchell Falls, and both Merten Falls?

Also what would I have to do to see these sites; hiking, couch tour etc...
Thanks for your help,
Don Thompson USA

Hi Don,

Did you download and read the free Kimberley guide yet?

That should help you some. It's hard to suggest a time table when I don't know how you plan to get around, what style of travel you prefer etc.

You can cover the lot in a single day by scenic flights from Kununurra. You can self drive and take two weeks to make the most of it.

One week is probably a reasonable amount of time to do both trips on the ground and incorporate some hiking and some nice nights around the campfire.

As for getting there:

To the Mitchell Plateau you can fly from Kununurra, from Drysdale Station or from the Mitchell camping area, you can self drive or you can take a tour.

The Mertens Falls are on the way to the Mitchell Falls.

Hike or fly over them, up to you...

And it's similar for the Bungles. You can fly from Kununurra, from Warmun, or from inside the park, or you can self drive and do all the hikes on the ground over two or three days. There are ground based tours, fly in and drive around tours... It's really all up to you!

If you need advice on coach tours and similar, please contact the Kununurra Visitor Centre. They are able to help you with that.
